Open Thread: I Will Kiss Anyone Not Wearing These 2020 Glasses Tonight

I honestly love New Year’s Eve. I’ll take any opportunity to wear a (faux) fur coat, throw on a lot of glitter (while I can), drink champagne and eventually vodka out of a fluted glass, and smoke a cigarette out of a foot long Cruella Deville-esque filter. To be honest, I’d do all of those things on any given Tuesday night, but people really give me a pass on New Year’s Eve, especially with the glitter.

However, if there’s one part of New Year’s Eve culture I absolutely cannot stand, it’s those damn glasses with the lenses in the 0s. Or worse, the lenses where there isn’t even a space to accommodate a lens. I mean, there are just so many gaudy accessories available, it seems like a real cop-out to go for the glasses. Especially, when they look like this.

I mean my God, there are literally two fucking zeros in the number! You could have just put them right in the 0s, but no, that would have just made too much sense. If you’ll excuse me, in light of this recent discovery I will need to commence champagne consumption an hour earlier than I’d previously planned. Is everyone else already celebrating?

Cheers Pink Ears!

Twilight Zone marathon! I recommend Long Live Walter Jameson, it’s a good episode, they just wrote about it on Slate.

I also finally got to try the “new” ruby chocolate! It really is very fruity. If you’ve ever sucked on the coating of a raw cocoa bean, that’s kind of what it tastes like, not so sour though. It’s very pretty too. I found it at the not nice Stop & Shop, so I assume it should be available everywhere by now.

Happy and healthy new year everybody!
